Examiner Training

California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE) holds annual training to prepare examiners to evaluate award applications through the lens of the Baldrige Criteria. These examiners are volunteers and represent a diverse background of industry and professional experience.  

Overview

During our 3.5 day Examiner Training (2.5 for Returning Examiners), attendees will learn how to apply the Criteria for Performance Excellence to an organization, evaluate an application, and develop comment writing skills. The training is facilitated by experienced state and national examiners, who will guide the attendees through exercises that allow for hands-on, group-based learning that simulates the overall examination process.
